Shh, please be quiet

  The Japanese demand no more silence in public facilities, which seems to stand out.
  Whether it was the Great Hanshin Earthquake in 1995 or an accidental residential fire nearby, everyone at the scene would find that there was no unnecessary shouting around, and even at the moment of rescuing others, it seemed difficult to hear everyone calling for help . Generally speaking, crowds tend to raise people’s voices, but at the same time, people’s voices are more likely to cause panic, leading to chaos at the scene.
  Japan has Disaster Prevention Day every year. Streets and houses, including hotels and apartments, will hold corresponding drills, such as what to do if there is a fire, and what to do if an earthquake occurs. These drills will require you to keep your voice down. This is to enter The first request after the exercise.
  It is said that the voice of modern Japanese is much smaller than before, and one of the important reasons is disaster prevention training. The same exercises and the same requirements are repeated every year. Over time, silence has become an important part of disaster prevention.
  Once, the self-government association of an apartment building sent a notice requesting the head of the household to attend a meeting. The topic of the meeting was “some instructions on how to accept the surrounding evacuation personnel when a tsunami occurs.”
  The host of the meeting said: “Because our apartment building is by the sea, it is also one of the few high-rise buildings in this area. Once a tsunami hits, we hope that the residents above the 10th floor will assist those who are evacuated around. According to our verification, the apartment building is If it is opened, the space above the 10th floor will accommodate more than 6,000 refugees.”
  Afterwards, the householders at the meeting carefully looked at a chart in their hands, which was written very clearly, including the number of evacuation paths. Emergency measures when the elevator is closed, the order of men, women and children, etc. And an obvious big character printed on the chart is “static”.
  In fact, silence can make people calm, and calmness may be the most powerful attitude of human beings when facing natural disasters.
